Prosecutor set to rule on Madison officer-involved shooting

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin prosecutor is set to announce whether a white police officer who killed an unarmed biracial man in Madison will face criminal charges.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne plans to announce at a Tuesday news conference whether he'll charge Officer Matt Kenny. Ozanne isn't expected to take any questions.

Police say Kenny shot 19-year-old Tony Robinson in an apartment house in March after Robinson attacked him. Kenny was responding to calls that Robinson had assaulted two people and was running in traffic.

Police have released few other details. The state Justice Department investigated the incident under a state law that requires outside agencies to review officer-involved deaths.

The shooting sparked several protests, all of them peaceful.
